If there is one unrelated sobering thing coming from all this, it is that covid-19 has shown many in the nation a small taste of the harsh realities of wartime.
You know how some bluster and scream on Facebook about breaking up Nigeria, taking up arms, fighting for freedom, having private ethnic armies yada yada yada…
Well, now we are seeing the reality that wars often involve lockdowns, curfews, food shortages, hoping and begging for food distribution from the state because one cannot buy food freely, businesses closed, schools closed, social activities a thing of the past, hospitals and medics stretched to the limit, price gouging of essential commodities etc etc etc
And this is just a war against a virus we cannot see. It is not the savagery of brother killing brother, violence, mayhem, rape, child soldiers, blood flowing, bombs dropping from the sky……….
We have one nation. One nation. When trouble comes, it affects us all. Let us build our nation together.
